Ants not hibernating

Virginia is warming up and the ants have stopped hibernating. Also, the coldest place I can put them is well over 10c. Should I just take them out of hibernation?

Look around outside. if you see ants outside, then it is time to bring them out. Hibernation is not a visible thing. They just slow down, that's all.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.
